Subject: Good comedy for whole family
Four stars for overall movie, but some of the comedy scenes are some of the funniest bits I've seen and should be better known. Very rarely doe my husband and son have the same taste in comedy, but this was quite funny.

Very enjoyable movie. Worth watching especially on a stormy night.

Subject: Fun Flick
There is no doubt that Askey is a comedic genius if you can get past the fact that he is like an irritating fly that won't stop buzzzzing around your ears. This guy is like your annoying kid brother who wants to tag around everywhere you go.

I remember watching this as a child in the seventies. An enjoyable way to spend a wet afternoon.
It's a good solid piece of british cinema. Good character performances,a good old-fashioned ghost story,scooby-doo style, with lots of 1950's black humour thrown in, as well as a bit of suspense.

Loved it, especially the scene of Arthur Askey and his pal trying to get the girl's attention on the train. Very upbeat, enjoyable film.
